Great hosts, but still a Netflix show

I love the team hosting this. They are great to listen to and can have lots of insightful things to say. Nevertheless, I could not help but be cautious going into this because, regardless of how talented the hosts are, they are still working on a Netflix produced show intended to promote Netflix properties.

It isn’t that I doubt what the hosts have to say. Rather, I can’t help but doubt what level of freedom they are given on actually critiquing the properties. It isn’t that they don’t critique, but it always feels slightly tampered.

For me, it was the Locke and Key episode that did it. I have watched the entire show, the first two seasons 2 or 3 times. There is plenty to love, and they dig into those things in the episode. However, there are still so many problems with this show (and I don’t mean the fact that it chooses to be more fantasy than horror). The basic structure and writing on this show is very poor, and for a podcast about analyzing our favorite properties, I can’t help but feel its a prime example of the team being limited by existing to promote Netflix properties.

My concerns with this Pod have been festering since it started, so it isn't just about this one episode either. I suspect some people may interpret this review as just me disagreeing with the hosts about a random show…but I don’t think I am. Quiete frankly, I don’t think they ever say exactly how much they actually like the show as a whole. They like a lot about it (as do I), but part of me wonders if they’d even cover it if it wasn’t a major Netflix SFF show. The fact that one of the hosts hasn’t even watched past season 1 (of 3) makes sense, and it speaks to the problems with Locke and Key—as much as we want to love it, there is a lot holding it back.
